Treating your moving crew the right way – what you need to do

Obviously, all of us want to do our best to make sure that we are good hosts to all people who enter our homes. Therefore, welcoming people who are going to help us move to the new living space is something that we should make sure to do all the time. After all, they are going to invest their power and knowledge to make sure that our transition into a new home is easy and efficient.

Therefore, you should go ahead and find out the best ways of treating your moving crew once the moving day comes. No matter whether you have contracted Divine Moving and Storage NYC to help out or you may be living in the state of NY and need some locally sourced moving help, all of your movers are going to be pretty thankful if you do the following for them:

  • Make sure that all of your items have been washed before your movers arrive
  • Keep your movers hydrated at all times
  • Be around to keep the walking lanes clear
  • Have snacks ready for your movers
  • Tip the guys once they are done

Now, depending on which part of the country you are living in, the customs in that area may be different from the rest of the country. So, feel free to share with us in the comments what you would have done once the movers came.

Make sure that all of your items have been washed before the movers arrive

The first and the most important thing that you should make sure to do before your movers come is to make sure that your items are ready for packing. The last thing any moving company would like to do is to relocate dirty items. So, by the time your moving crews are due, make sure that your items are clean and ready to go. Obviously, this is what you should do in the case that you have opted to invest in professional packers NYC for your move.

If this is not the case with you and if your plan is that you are going to pack all by yourself, then you should make sure that you are ready to go. As you may already suspect, this is not in terms of being up from the bed. No, the moment your movers place their foot in the door, your items should have already been lined up and for taking out and loading into the moving truck.

Both of these options are going to be important in terms of treating your moving crews right. And most importantly, they are going to know how to appreciate it.

Keep your movers hydrated

Moving is hard labor. It really is. It includes carrying items up and down so many flights of stairs at times. Also, even if there are no stair involved, bags, electrical appliances, and furniture is going to be pretty heavy. So, breaking a sweat is what the guys helping you relocate is what they are going to do.

Therefore, to make sure that they feel good while helping you move from the State of NY, make sure that there is water available to them at all times. Also, other drinks such as coffee, tea, juice, or energy drinks are good to have. After all, treating your moving crew is all about making them feel good. Offer them whatever you would have drunk yourself.

Keep the walking lanes clear when treating your moving crew

Moving around is difficult when there are items in your way. Also, debris can find its way between people’s legs and feet. So, if you do not know what else to do, be around to help your movers have clear walking lanes. This way all of them will finish the day safe and sound.

Have snacks ready for your movers

Offering people to eat is a sign of courtesy. Still, you should not prepare the full course for your movers. However, treating your in house movers to snacks is something that we would advise doing. Prevent them from going hungry will make them happy.

Tip the guys once they are done

Lastly, there is nothing that says gratitude the way tips do. Monetary showcasing of gratitude is something that is embedded in the American way of life. After all, some people make their living off of tips. So, once the guys are done and ready to go, you should tip them all. This small sign of gratitude is going to be worth so much for them.

Are you ready for treating your moving crew properly?

As you have seen, there are many ways that you could be treating your moving crew. Some of the ways can take place while they are working. Others come afterward. Still, movers will be thankful for all of them.
